“This book draws you in from the very first page with believable characters, stimulating interactions, and compelling subject matter. Truly a superb novel for everyone interested in the origins of civilization and the mysteries of the universe, and this is just the beginning! Make way for a powerful new literary saga in your life!” ― Andrew Collins, author of Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods
“In the midst of this irresistible novel, Barbara Hand Clow weaves very real stories of the scandalous inner workings of the Vatican. Her inclusion of accurate information about the deep-seated sexual abuse issue, the corrupt power plays, and the equally corrupt churchmen who have sustained it only adds to the fascination of the main storyline.” ― Thomas Doyle, Catholic priest and author of Sex, Priests, and Secret Codes: The Catholic Church&rsqu
“Barbara has done it again. She has given readers a great gift with this book. Revelations of the Ruby Crystal reveals her mastery of the written word. This book is a doorway into another place filled with great truths, relevant knowledge, and modern-day mysticism. The synchronistic magic she weaves within her characters’ adventures, and the love story that evolves between them, is an example of the full bloom of human potential.” ― Hillary Raimo, founder of Love . . . Breathe . . . for Earth
“Played out in the story of uncovering the abusive power of male sexuality at the heart of the Vatican, this romance offers an introduction to what is a significant religious movement by providing insight into the character and attraction of the Gnosticism of New Age belief and practices. A page-turning novel of love and desire, abuse and corruption, and the cosmic quest for redemption, this is the best of introductions to the appeal of astrology and New Age spirituality over and against common perceptions of Christian faith and the Church.” ― Timothy F. Sedgwick, Ph.D., Clinton S. Quin Professor of Christian Ethics at Virginia Theological Se
“Barbara Hand Clow’s Revelations of the Ruby Crystal is a unique revelation about deep cosmic processes and actors in the dimensional ecology of our planet as well as a page-turner story about loss, redemption, and transformation of beings who are deeply in love. As a legal advisor, I can vouch for the authenticity of the darker aspects at work in the action set in Rome and in the Vatican itself. It is truly a novel for our times.” ― Alfred Lambremont Webre, author of The Omniverse: Transdimensional Intelligence, Time Travel, The Af
“Barbara Hand Clow’s book Revelations of the Ruby Crystal opened my eyes even further to the world-creating artistry--the ‘fictive power’--of the imagination to shape our world and influence our souls. The story that she weaves is a perfect example of how storytelling is the shamanic art par excellence that helps us to de-literalize our own reading of the world and remember who we are.” ― Paul Levy, author of Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil
“Esoteric Christianity, buried secrets, psychic powers, karma, and kundalini entwine in this lush, vivid erotic romance set fittingly in eternally romantic Rome.” ― Peggy Payne, author of Cobalt Blue and other novels of sex and spirituality
“As a software trainer and developer and a published author of two books on word processing, I often encounter many technology users who are longing for a vision of what might be possible as a ‘next step’ in our evolution. Revelations of the Ruby Crystal is a divinely inspired web of transcendent energy that has a magnetic appeal. This book is a visually rich, sensual, non-social-mediadriven trans-Atlantic adventure using revelatory information about the historical past that moves us through a complex romance quite unlike any that has ever been written. A must read!” ― Marianne Carroll, business productivity consultant
“Revelations of the Ruby Crystal is a gift for anyone interested in unmasking a time line of deep secrets and hushed discoveries about the life of Jesus; the ossuary of Peter found in Jerusalem; the earliest years of Christianity; Marcion, a so-called heretic; and Christianity’s critical ‘wrong turn’ and its eventual takeover, distortion, and corruption by the Roman patriarchy. The intense dramas are played out against the backdrop of a powerful paradigm shift jolting world events into chaos, the Vatican into a meltdown, and a time of transformation into the ethers, finally welcomed in Rome by the surprising and sudden election of Pope Francis, the ‘revolutionary.’ It is an intense, exciting read.” ― Jean Richard, polarity therapist for ritual abuse

So, if you're a Barbara Hand Clow fan, you owe it to yourself to read this book. If you're interested in the big picture, as in galactic, you will enjoy the this book. If you're interested in Catholicism, Gnosticism, the Mayan calendar, inter-dimensionality, reptilian possession, the balance between masculine and feminine energy, the history of the world since the cataclysm, and/or energy work, this book will give you much to ponder. Especially interesting is her descriptions of how energy manifests in the physical body.
Ruby Crystal is the first book in a trilogy. I'm certain I'll buy the next two for all the reasons stated above. Now that the characters have been thoroughly established, perhaps the conflict will increase. Imo, the book bogs down because the characters aren't in direct conflict with the antagonist. The Big Bad is the Catholic Church and everything Hand Clow reveals through her characters' investigating it is fascinating information, but it's too abstract to make for good plot. I also had problems believing the dialogue came from real people. When characters are channeling information, formal speech fits, but there's a lot of conversation in this book that would benefit from a revision aimed at making it less stilted. And for me, it's jarring to jump from one character's thoughts to another's in the same scene, let alone the same paragraph.
In that same interview, Hand Clow said the central question of her trilogy is how did evil come into this world. That's about as "high concept" as it gets and she delivers. Through fiction she has clarified the origin and role of evil in a way I have not understood before. This is a serious work that has earned a permanent place on my very crowded bookcases.
somewhat battered by the constant barrage of information related to the Catholic Church and ties to sexual abuse, the Sandy Hook shootings, global elite, the Papal lineage shrouded in a history of male domination, etc. It felt like the author was on a virtual saltbox slinging mud to push a few very strong messages. Honestly, this book should come with a warning to all Catholics (which I am not) that the entire history of the church up to the modern day Pope is pretty much the subject of this book and it's not pretty.
Is it too much to ask, as a spiritual seeker, to want to learn from an author AND be entertained through a fascinating work of fiction? I expect too much I suppose. Going in, I knew about the author's prior works. I became acquainted with her through Gaia TV this past year, and quickly bought several of her books. Barbara Hand Clow is incredibly knowledgeable; she has a deep knowledge of esoteric sciences, universal cosmology, history, etc. I actually like her explanation of the Nine Dimensions, so the overtones in this book were welcome by me.
This is her first work of fiction (historical fiction), and while I found her writing to be overall acceptable, some of the chapters seem to run on. The transitions between paragraphs where scenes change are often odd or lacking.
